Time,Time And More Time

Good morning where has this lovely weather gone?Hope that wasnt our summer that just flashed before our eyes..lolTime will tell which brings me onto todays creation.

"Time"

I have used various techniques for this card and just few T/Holtz bits.Whihc are the backing papers .I have used tiles and distressed inked them and then added T/Holtz papers again and cut the alphabet letters onto the distressed tiles.I then die cut the SU top Bote die and distressed that using Airondack Alcohol inks in Stonewashed,caramel.Latte,sandal and silver mixative until i got the desired colur i wanted. I then stamped the clock face from Tim Holtz stampset in clear distress ink and used SU embossing gold Powder and heated to get this beautiful gold effect. I then added various charms from my stash a clock face hanging also small grandfather clock from the tiles.In the middle added clock metal face and ontop raised class fragment i had just the right size stuck that on.The Brad in the bottom flower is from studio 45.The top flower has an altered earring bout in claires sale ,recycled to use as a brad.The flowers are prima ive distressed with antique linen .The ribbon was from my stash. This was based on the sketch over at Sugar Creek Challenge but missed the dead line. Time wasn't on my side Here's a close up of the clock face
